    the issue I’m having is that after going WOT or close to it on the high way or in general the revs are staying higher than normal even when I’m idling or coasting To a slip with my foot off the brake and gas. I’m getting a combined voltage of about 6 volts. Was wondering if it’s not something else. I just replaced my brake switch and figured the throttle was being a little weird also should I replace it.

    Had a few instances where I was coming to a stop and felt like my revs were higher than normal. Also my tuner thinks I'm having trouble getting/maintaining full throttle.

    Are you driving with the shifter in D or S? In S (sport mode) the car intentionally delays upshifts and will “rev high” as you coast. If RPM is the only issue and the car isn’t continuing to accelerate after you let off the gas then there isn’t anything wrong with the pedal.

    Who is your tuner? Making the throttle go wide open is literally their job, and if they can’t figure out how then you probably need to find someone else. But as a side note- you don’t necessarily need the throttle completely open to make power, especially at lower RPM. My car makes 19-20 psi of boost at 3000 RPM with ease, at only ~50% throttle. My throttle doesn’t stay pegged steady open until above 4000 rpm or so.

    I'm hitting 19psi.
    Throttle angle never maxes out and has multiple dips during a pull. This is with my foot literally on the floor.
